Green tea is huge. By that, we mean that consumers in the States associate this tea with being a very healthy beverage. There are now multiple studies out there touting its aid in the prevention of high cholesterol, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and dementia. And green tea is loaded with antioxidants like catechins and flavanoids, especially EGCG, (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) which you can read about in many Asian studies. Some companies are pitching EGCG in pill form, hoping to take advantage of these reports.
Though we are glad it's healthy, we think this chatter distracts you from enjoying your cup. Sure, it's healthy, but we make tea that tastes good and that is the story we would like to tell. Every sip sings health to your taste buds and your soul.
We cover the spectrum in green teas from China, to Japan, to India and welcome you to taste the difference between a steamed green tea (Japanese Sencha) to a pan fired green tea (Dragonwell) from China, which takes over 25,000 buds to make a pound. And for those who want their green tea without the green tea taste (you can't please everyone)? We have blended Harvest Apple and Mmmango with fruit and Rooibos. In their own way, they are all delish.
We hope the art of the craft will reveal itself in your cup.
